All Eyes on Havarti



As a rich and buttery cheese originating from Denmark, Havarti stands a cut above the rest!

Havarti cheese is a semi soft, mild cow’s milk cheese with a buttery aroma and taste. Its flavour is a delicious combination of sweet and nutty notes. Havarti can be sliced, grilled or melted—perfect for dinner parties and outdoor cookouts!

It is rindless, smooth and has very small openings distributed in its  mass. Havarti’s pockmarks are sometimes called eyes. 

Havarti cheese was created by a Danish farmer’s wife who operated an experimental farm called Havarthigaard, in the mid-19th century.  She traveled the world exploring the art of cheese making and upon her return, decided to experiment with different methods. She eventually named her finest creation after the farm it was made on—Havarti of course! What a delicious experiment!

Minimize Waste

If you can’t use a whole cheese at once, cut off only what you can eat and keep the rest in the refrigerator. Moving cheese back and forth from the refrigerator only hastens moisture loss and spoilage.
